Ali McGraw

Ali McGraw originally began her career in fashion, working at one point as an assistant to legendary fashion editor Diana Vreeland. Perhaps this influenced her wonderfully innovative approach to dressing. As MacGraw's ex-husband, producer Robert Evans, former head of Paramount, recalled in his famous memoir, The Kid Stays in the Picture: "Her entire wardrobe consisted of scarves to use as turbans, embroidered tablecloths used for wraparound skirts, etc.--naturally, all second-, third-, and fourthhand. Yet ... each year she was on the best dressed list. Style, unlike fashion, cannot be bought nor taught. You either have it or you don't." - Huffington Post
